Think "Game of Thrones" made simpler and you won't be far wrong.  It's essentially the story of  Thomas Cale, (the hero - though by no means a good guy), who is a member of a religious group, (the Redeemers) that trains its acolytes to fight, and his part in the martial and political activities that take place when the Redeemers set out on their quest to take over the world,   Power crazed leaders; great battle scenes; political intrigue are described in a many layered plot with well crafted characters.  It all adds up to an exciting read, with some real surprises in store.
